Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting (FCCS) Facility
The Harry Hood Bassett Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting (FCCS) Facility at UVM is a College of Medicine Core Facility designed as a multi-user resource for the high speed analysis and sorting of cells. The FCCS Facility has BD LSRII and MACSQuant VYB analytical cytometers, and a BD FACS AriaIII high-speed cell sorter. This equipment was purchased through National Institute of Health and UVM-College of Medicine Shared Instrumentation Grants. Investigators who bring samples to the FCCS Facility for sorting or analysis pay a fee, which is used to offset operating expenses. The FCCS Facility provides professional consultation and assistance with equipment use, experimental design, and interpretation of flow data.
